In this fascinating interview Federico Faggin, designer of the first commercial microprocessor and pioneer in the movement to base mathematical theory on consciousness, urges science to embrace consciousness to explain the weirdness of quantum physics, and use it as the instrument of scientific investigation. “There need no longer be a duality between mind and matter,” he says. “With consciousness you can reach reality from the inside.” He makes a startling suggestion - that matter is the ink with which consciousness writes its own self-knowing.
